Cubs Now Head Slate
With Waikapus Close
llaikus Forfeit Game By Failing to
Show Up Waikapus Put Another
Over On Chinese Series Ends
On April 4.

Waikapus .... 5 3 2 .ti-DO
Chinese C 3 3 .50C
Hatkus 7 2 5 .285
Tho llaikus forfeited their game to
the Cubs as they failed to appear on
tho diamond last Sunday to play the
first game. So only one game was
pulled off at 2:30 P. M. between the
Waikapus and Chinese.
In this game the Waikapus were
victorious over the Chinese by the
score of 0 to 4. Tho Chinese failed to
tee Kala's deliveries and seldom con
nected with them. They weie hand
led In fine stylo by H. Scholtz.
Chong pitched for the Chinese and
his oft'eringij were better favored by
tho batters of tho other side as they
succeeded in netting nine runs of him.
The exciting part of the game Was
in the last inning when the Chinese
started to connect with Kala's bend
ers and it looked like a big score
awaited them. But the lead was too
far ahead of the Chinese and their
efforts to tie the tcore only accounted
for two runs.
The Cubs are now leading, but the
rest, excepting the llaikus, have just
as good a chance as the Cubs for the
championship of the first s.erics which
will probably end on the 4th of next
Jno. Garcia umpired the games and
his decisions were up to the standard.
If the llaikus -appear on the dia
mond tomorrow, the games will be ae
1 P. M. Haikus vs. Chinese.
3 P. M. Waikapus vs. Cubs.
Has Cohen Cornered
Joe Cohen has cornered tho moving
picture business in the Islands for the
Consolidated Amusement Company,
according to Joe and his associates,
in Ills purchase of Sam Blair's inter
ests in the Paramount feature films.
Tho Valley Isle Theater, which is one
of tho Consolidated's string, claims
that it will be in position to back off
into the ocean anything in the way of
competition after April 1st, When tho
now deal goes into effect.
On tho other hand, Manager Pha
ros, of tho Orpheum, declares that
Henry Bredhoff, of tho Honolulu Popu
lar Theater, with which the Orpheum
is associated, has several things up his
sleeve that will make Mr. Cohen sit
up and gasp. In short he claims that
Bredhoff has a better line of pictures
on the way than he lost when his
partner Blair sold out to Cohen.
Cohen admits that ho is a trust, but
says he is one of the benevolent kind,
of trusts which sits up nights thinking
out ways to give tho people more foi
Bring Maui Up to Date
Two large audiences greeted the
much advertised cabaret girls at the
Orpheum this week, and for tho most
part were disappointed or disgusted,
according to the point of view. Thoso
who expected to bo shocked, were
not, and thoso who went to hear
music, didn't. What they did see was
a half-dozen painted women, faithful
replicas of certain dreary resorts of
large cities, whoFe business there is
to separate young (and old) fools
from their money through tho medium
of fancy mixed drinks. And the alleg
ed singing was also a good duplica
tion of tho raucous noises from tho
liquor and smoke seared throats of
the rathskeller siren. It is entirely to
our people's credit that a big majority
of tho audiences palpably didn't llko

condition of" the Hanalei district as
"rotten." A special committee which
it appointed says that tho police offi

others who violate tho liquor and

New Law Not Needed to
Cooperate, Say Senators
According to tho Senate legislation
committee, farmers and others in the
Territory who want to form co-operative
associations do not need now
legislation in order to do so. This in
formation was received by the Kuiaha
Farmers' Association this week In n
letter from Senator II. A. Baldwin.
Mr. Baldwin Inclosed a legal opinion
on tho matter from .attorney Alex.
Lindsay, Jr., and also stated that tho
same opinion is held by tho attorney
general. All tho restrictions asked for
by the bill submitted for passage, tho
senator says, can bo obtained In tho
by-laws of the organization, when in
corporating under tho present laws.
Tho pineapple branch of the Kuiaha
organization, will probably talTe Im
mediate steps to Incorporate, In order
to more satisfactorily carry out Its
plans, and it is understood that tho
Kula farmers are also desirous of be
coming an incorporated body.
